In instances where the appearance of a book is of no consequence, a scanned pdf is only preferable to a text file in point of correctness.In instances where appearance is everything, I am thinking here particularly of the Beatrix Potter or the Jenson Augustine, a watermark on each page would be an abuse. I am not saying these watermarks totally ruin these books ( I would rather have them posted with watermarks than not at all ) I am saying this is a nasty new development ( maybe 5 days ago after a year and a half ) and someone should protest about it. The big corporations have been doing what they like always but I would like Microsoft to keep its hands off our culture.

Subject: Watermark not an issue for me
I can live with a microsoft watermark in order to see materials that I do not have access to in any other way.

As a Mayflower descendant, I am very interested in this records, but no longer live in Mass. This is a wonderful way of "spreading the (information) wealth".
